This Is (Not) Your Grandmothers Poetry Book

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
I was force fed poetry in high school as I'm sure many people were. And like many, I ran screaming from the classroom. If that's what happened to you then I think you'll like this book. Modern free verse poetry on subjects that matter today, and stories from my blog, "The Window." Some are serious and some humorous. I think you'll find a little something for everyone here.

Review by: Greg Schroeder on Oct. 14, 2013 :
Marshall writes clearly on a variety of topics, all with an earthy, realistic, and slightly cynical bent. His ideas are clear and the presentation flows smoothly. The reader feels the emotion in the stories and the poems. One feels the sun, smells the dog, and hears the fury of the storm. My personal favorite poem is Real? I feel like that often. My favorite of his short prose works is My Dog Eats Frogs. It is exactly about what it says - the dog's perspective is superbly captured!
